It does seem strange having two rehabs close together but maybe they wanted it back and up for the busy Christmas season before finishing the rehab?
I couldn't agree more, they already ruined Kraken with the VR, so I'd hate to see the same thing happen with Kumba. When we visited in August, Kumba/Sheikra/Montu were walk-ons all day and it was glorious!

Hi, I'm heading to Florida for spring break during the first week of April. I was wondering what should I expect on crowds and is it worth going Friday for the extra 3 hours as the park is open 10-9 or going during the middle of the week when it is open 10-6. I have a plan for ride order with Cheetah Hunt>Cobra's Curse>Falcons Fury and then the rest of the rides. Do they have an app that says ride times? Otherwise is there anything else I shouldn't miss while at the park? Thank you in advance.

you should do Cheetah Hunt, Cobra's Curse, and Montu (as it's right there, and is the best suspended coaster I've ever been on). .then Train to Pantopia station for Falcon's Fury, Kumba (one of the stars of BGT), Scorpion. Then you can train it to Shiekra.

Okay more specifically, PART of that area is now closed indefinitely for budget. The animal areas remain, but Wild Surge and Jungle Flyers are closed.
Busch Gardens Tampa Closes Several Attractions
In an apparent cost savings measure, several attractions at Busch Gardens Tampa were closed indefinitely as of Monday, February 5, 2018. The entirety of the Treetop Trails section of Jungala, located towards the back of the park, has been closed off.
Attractions there include Wild Surge, Jungle Flyers, and the climbing structures and water play areas. Park Ambassadors who worked in that section have been reassigned to other areas in the park.
A statement received from a park spokesperson on the closure:
"We regularly evaluate the guest flow and experience in the various areas of the park and in our effort to always work on improving our guest experience; we have temporarily closed the area and will be evaluating how we can make improvements for the future."
The rest of the Jungala section remains open to guests, including the Tiger Trail and Orangutan Outpost animal habitats, Bengal Bistro and Tiger’s Den gift shop.
Orang Cafe, a second dining location in Jungala, closed several seasons ago.
The Jungala area was a major expansion that opened at the park in 2008, replacing The Python roller coaster and Claw Island tiger habitat. The Treetop Trails area was designed to be enjoyed by children who were too old for the Land of the Dragons section (now Sesame Street Safari) but still too young for some of the larger attractions like Kumba and Montu.
The attractions in Treetop Trails join Tidal Wave, Gwazi, and Rhino Rally rides along with Marrakesh Theater as standing but not operating (SBNO) at the park.
